Saw some beautiful Geminids last night between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m. when it decided to cloud over.  Too lazy to go over to a New Forest dark site to photograph – I worked from the back garden – big mistake!!  The Sodium street light pollution seems to be getting worse year on year and quite simply the Geminids couldn’t compete with all the background yellow 🙁  Great shame as it was one of the best meteor displays I’ve ever seen – slow, long and very bright trails stretching out from Gemini towards Orion mostly.  A missed photo-opportunity all down to laziness!!
